Overview
Discover the speakeasies of 1920s New York on a leisurely evening walking tour. Skip long lines as your guide brings you through hidden entrances that are nearly impossible to find on your own. While you sip on 2-3 specialty cocktails over the course of the evening, you'll learn about the history of Prohibition-era New York.
What to Expect

Meet your guide in downtown Manhattan for a brief introduction to Prohibition-era New York. At the first speakeasy of the tour, you'll enjoy a craft cocktail (own expense) as you listen to the history of the city’s clandestine bars and breweries.

This tour guarantees you breeze past long lines to make the most of the evening. Going with a local guide is a necessity, as most speakeasy entrances are hidden or unmarked as they would have been in the 1920s.

Follow the guide to bars that even locals can’t find, in back alleys, through phone booths, behind a psychic shop, or past doors marked “No Entrance.” By the end of the tour, leave feeling more in the know than most New Yorkers.

Alex is the Font of all Prohibition AND Cocktail Knowledge!

My title of this review says it all. We had Alex for the East Village tour; and 3.5 hours later, his energy was still going strong......and even in the rain. He was knowledgeable, delightful, gracious, and known by the bar managers. It was clear that...More

A must do!

Well organised but casual relaxed vibe, while being very informative at the same time. We went to four different speakeasies... all different but cool in their own way and saw some nice parts of town in between. This was at the end of a long...More

Really great inexpensive way to see places you wouldnt otherwise even see!

We did the lower east side (LES) tour with Tony. He was great. Remember there are 4 different tours so some reviews may be for different areas and with different guides. The places we went to were awesome and Tony was knowledgeable. The bars are...More

From memory they go from four areas in Manhattan island and we did the west village. Either way they are all in “main” areas of the city and easy to get to by subway. Hope that helps.
